Is Arimidex 1mg advisable for ventricular tachycardia?

I was recently diagnosed with ventricular tachycardia shortly before a mastectomy for invasive lobular cancer. Cardiologist put me on 200mg amiodarone, now oncologist started me on 1mg Arimidex last week. Possible problems with heightened heart issues?

Internal Medicine Specialist 's  Response

Arimidex is used as a first-line treatment of postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive or hormone receptor unknown locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.

Second line treatment: advanced breast cancer in postmenopausal women with disease progression following tamoxifen therapy.

Patients with ER-negative disease and patients who did not respond to previous tamoxifen therapy rarely responded to Arimidex.

So please consult your treating doctor for further queries.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
